Open House Festival: Courtney Marie Andrews
Courtney Marie Andrews is only 25 but has already spent almost a decade on the road as a professional musician, touring since she was 16, singing backing vocals for arena rock band Jimmy Eat World and travelling as lead guitarist for cult Americana star Damien Jurado.
Andrews has been eliciting lofty comparisons to Joni Mitchell and Emmylou Harris back in the States. Like Harris, she has a natural ability to traverse folk and country with apparent ease.
With a gift of making plain words sound fresh, her latest album Honest Life goes over and above the intimacy of the sparse acoustic landscapes and her unaffected vocals – the delicate lyrical barbs make Honest Life one to hear.
After a decade spent at the height of the music industry, touring solo and with large pop bands, Courtney Marie Andrews has realised her desire for a place to come home to. She found that in a small rural town in the deep forests of Washington. There, she posted up at a local bar, slinging drinks, basking in the simplicity and reflection it allowed. She has emerged with a new fire on her 2017 album 'Honest Life', melding indie-folk and Americana with a rebellious country flavour reminiscent of her Southwestern roots.
Honest Life is the culmination of Andrews’ life on the road, absorbing the stories, traditions and heartbreaks along the way. The songs on Honest Life touch on personal coming-of-age stories (“Rookie Dreaming”), the stunning beauty of resiliency (“How Quickly Your Heart Mends”), take-no-shit self-determination anthems (“Irene”), and thoughts on how to accept emotions like loneliness and vulnerability in your life (“Table for One”). Andrews’ heart-wrenching songwriting and crystal-clear vocal style are as captivating as they are invigorating. It’s no wonder Ryan Adams called Andrews “a phenomenal songwriter.” True to her own vision, Andrews produced the entire record herself and recorded it at Litho Studios in Seattle with recording engineer Floyd Reitsma, whose recent credits include Noah Gundersen and Pearl Jam.
